About this book

Re-issue of Wilson's seminal Pulitzer Prize-winning book, first published in 1978, in which he argues that there is a universal human nature, which has been influenced by, and in turn influenced, our evolutionary past. In a new preface, Wilson reflects on how he came to write the book.

Media reviews

"Compellingly interesting and enormously important [...] The most stimulating, the most provocative, and the most illuminating work of nonfiction I have read in some time."
– William McPherson, The Washington Post Book World

"A work of high intellectual daring [...] Here is an accomplished biologist explaining, in notably clear and unprevaricating language, what he thinks his subject now has to offer to the understanding of man and society [...] The implications of Wilson's thesis are rather considerable, for if true, no system of political, social, religious or ethical thought can afford to ignore it."
– Nicholas Wade, The New Republic

"Wilson is a sophisticated and marvelously humane writer. His vision is a liberating one, and a reader of this splendid book comes away with a sense of the kinship that exists among the people, animals, and insects that share the planet."
The New Yorker

"Twenty-five years after its first publication, Harvard University Press has re-released Edward O. Wilson's classic work, On Human Nature. A double Pulitzer Prize winner, Wilson is a writer of effortless grace and stylish succinctness and this is one of his finest, most important books [...] [A] highly influential, elegantly written book."
– Robin McKie, The Observer

"A seminal, groundbreaking, informative, thought-provoking, enduringly valuable, and highly recommended read."
